I've got Mint 13 Cinnamon installed in a VMWare Player 5 guest. The VMWare Tools come with the new vmware_gfx drivers, which I would like to install. However the vmware-config-tools.pl script seems to think that it doesn't have drivers included for the version of XOrg as shipped with Mint 13 (XOrg 1.11.3).
Q1: is XOrg 1.11.3 compatible with the vmware_gfx video driver?
Q2: is there any way to patch vmware-config-tools.pl such that it 'skips' its XOrg version test and installs the drivers as shipped with VMWare Tools?
Currently I can't get any further than:
Code: Select all
Detected X server version 1.11.3
Distribution provided drivers for Xorg X server are used.
Skipping X configuration because X drivers are not included.
Note that before my vmware tools install I switched to a console, stopped mdm and purged xserver-xorg-video-vmware, to make sure I don't have any vmware drivers from the Mint(ubuntu?) distribution installed anymore.
